I’m not sure who edited Hillary Clinton’s campaign retrospective titled “What Happened” but I can tell you I expected to make it past the opening quote of the book without an issue.

Clinton opens the book with this Harriet Tubman quote, “Children, if you are tired, keep going; if you are hungry, keep going; if you want to taste freedom, keep going.”

Clinton also used the quote in her 2008 Democratic National Convention speech.

It is pretty inspiring stuff. The people who apparently made it up and misattributed it to Tubman to give it weight during the civil rights movement in the 1960s had a pretty good way with words. Tubman was not typically as poetic.

I am not finished with Clinton’s book yet, but she is pretty open about her failure and disappointment and seems to lay bare some emotional moments from the campaign. Whether you are a fan or not, her first hand telling of the moments when she and Bill attended Donald Trump’s wedding to Melania to when she decided to swallow her pride and attend Trump’s inauguration were interesting.

She did a good job of expressing the personal pain of her loss pretty well. Of course, she couldn’t resist pointing out that she has attended every inauguration since 1993 and Trump’s crowd was definitely smaller than normal – adding her two cents the first official controversy of Trump’s tenure.

Thanks to the Trump administration, Clinton will probably end up being wrong on another thought about Tubman as well. In her author’s note to open the book, Clinton uses Tubman to make another point.

“In 2016, the U.S. government announced that Harriet Tubman will become the face of the $20 bill. If you need proof that America can still get it right, there it is,” Clinton writes.

Like most things approved or done by the administration of President Barack Obama, the Trump administration is reversing course on putting Tubman’s visage on the currency.

Treasury Secretary Steve T. Mnunchin was not ready to commit to keeping the promise made by the Obama Administration.

“Right now, we’ve got a lot more important issues to focus on,” Mnunchin said. “The Number One issue why we change the currency is to stop counterfeiting,” he said. “So the issues of why we change it will be primarily related to what we need to do for security purposes. That’s what I’m focused on for the moment.”

In his defense, it has been a while since the multi-millionaire has used a measly twenty. If Tubman was supposed to be on the 100, it might interest him more.

Trump is quick to say he supports Tubman on a bill, but maybe not the 20 – because he is a big Andrew Jackson fan, even traveling to Tennessee for 250th birthday celebration for the country’s seventh President.

Trump remembers Jackson as a wealthy man who was still able to bring about a populist movement and wielded executive powers with impunity.

Of course, historians remember Jackson for his pro-slavery beliefs and inhumane treatment of Native Americans. I’m sure Trump fans see no problem with him being a big fan of the President who orchestrated the Trail of Tears.

Trump loves Jackson’s populism despite his horrible acts against people of color and Native Americans. Trump – and his fans – have no problem overlooking a few atrocities to achieve their goals.

I’m sure Trump and his defenders would be quick to point out that there were bad people “on both sides” of the Trail of Tears.

"I think Harriet Tubman is fantastic, but I would love to leave Andrew Jackson or see if we can maybe come up with another denomination," Trump said.

Maybe we should create a $13 bill – in honor of the 13th Amendment that freed the slaves. Maybe Trump and Mnuchin will agree put Tubman on that bill.

Let’s be honest, in this administration, putting someone’s face on currency other than Trump’s own is highly unlikely.

If they don’t put Tubman on a piece of currency, that will mean Clinton’s book has two glaring errors before Chapter One begins. That is just one more reason Trump’s administration won’t be in any hurry to make the change.
